Windows ME was a stinker, in more ways than one. Yes, we still have a few WinME PC's running too. Pretty when it works, if you don't have to work on it, around it or with it! Windows 98 SE was more stable. If you have to run Windows 98 for whatever compatibility reason, we suggest Win98 SE. And for those of you who are happy with WinMe - Enjoy!
